There are six student courses available: from frames to communication to retail. There’s plenty to choose from.

Frames in Focus

Lenses in Focus

This course gives you basic knowledge about lenses and contact lenses, as well as eye-sight solutions in general. You will be taken on an interesting journey using videos to illustrate how these products, including frames, are made – from start to finish.

Customer communication in Focus

As an optician/optometrist, you’ll work with customers – this course will give you the knowledge and tools to communicate even more professionally and effectively with them. You will learn about different communication patterns – including your own – and how you can use this information in your work and personal life.

Retail in Focus

After your study, you will be fully prepared for the clinical side of your profession. If you’d like to know more about the retail side as well, this is your course. What does it mean to own a store? And how do you run a profitable one? You will learn about people management, leadership, marketing and brand positioning.

Fundus in Focus

Given by an experienced ophthalmologist, this course will improve your skills in interpreting fundus photos. You will get a better understanding of different structures in the retina, learn more about the theories regarding different eye diseases, and learn how to identify them via fundus photography.

Multifocal contact lenses in Focus

As an optometry student you know about presbyopia, but what is the best refractive solution for your customer? Is there a difference between what a customer wants and what they need? This course will offer you tips and tricks regarding multifocal contact lenses. You will also learn how to best manage and even exceed a customer’s expectations, which will limit drop-outs.
